I used one of these and a 5 gallon bucket to wash clothes for a couple of years. That was for two adults, a toddler, baby, and included cloth diapers. It’s quite an arm workout, but was doable. It was tedious to hand wring everything out before hanging it to dry, but overall saved us so much money in laundry costs. It’d be a really great option for a single person.
My wife got some sunscreen on her interior (SR+). We use this to clean the inside of our cars:
I haven’t noticed it since.
Some fixes that people in past threads had:
> Get some electrical contact cleaner (I used this), spray a little bit in each side, roll/click it a couple times, wait for a half an hour. Mine's been working flawless since. I received a replacement and it developed the same issue, but this fix works.
>I remapped one of the side buttons to act as the middle click.
>My solution: Blow really hard with you lips sealed around the scroll wheel. I have three G602s in service and have used this solution many times. It's not a permanent fix, but as long as you aren't using middle click in an action game, refixing it takes only a breath.
This is all you need for the vegan leather, so good!
This is known as "drifting" and it is a common issue in the joycons. What you need to do is buy electronic contact cleaner, (I used this one) and spray it under your joycon flaps that are under the analog stick.
I love a Boswell Spot Bot. They are great!
Edit: I just went on Amazon and typed “car cleaner interior stain” and this came up. It has a lot of purchases and good reviews.
I really think you should take this guy to small claims court.
I've used this on countless iPhones, tablets, androids, etc. Used it to remove seran wrap that melted to a car too (a friend's prank gone wrong when a dude didn't go out for a few days) 100% recommend this to anyone tired of scrubbing gooey shit.
I'd have a worry in the back of my head about someone using it to melt down lead.
I'd probably use something like this to give me peace of mind.
Can always buy a test kit and see what it comes up with. For here is what I found on Amazon, comes with 8 tests. Probably not a bad idea to have around if you are into buying vintage cast iron. 3M LeadCheck Swabs, 8-Pack https://www.amazon.com/dp/B008BK15PU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_q7FWBbMX65CXD
Suede is more durable than you think. I understand your concerns though. I’ve used this one on suede strands, and I don’t have any complaints. It darkened the color while it was wet, but that only lasted a few minutes.

It looks like speckled clay, which is typically achieved with an addition of granular manganese. It could just be a larger piece of manganese that discolored the glaze.
If you're worried about it, you can buy lead test kits at most home improvement stores or even Amazon.

You might try some quick dry electronics cleaner.
Remove the batteries, liberally spray that stuff up in there and let it dry.
Make absolutely certain that it's 100% dry before you try to insert the batteries back into it.
If you can't find quick dry electronics cleaner, locally, Amazon carries a few brands.
I did not, but you can get the swabs here
Remember that lead is dangerous if you ingest it, so if the paint pattern is worn or chipping off while you use it, then you might accidentally ingest it. My parents had Corelle dishes growing up and ours held up really well, never had any paint chipping.
You are also probably much more likely to be exposed to lead via tap water than you are from dishes.

I know there's tutorials and videos and all that, but I went with this for the cheapest and simplest possible solution and it definitely helped my drift problems with my left joycon which was awful. Just a tiny tiiiiny spritz around a couple sides of the joystick and it was good to go after putting down/unhooked to dry for a little bit.

can I have a moment of your time to talk about our Lord and Savior, Evaporust?
So here's the update: I opened the Luminette using a torx screwdriver (I have a 10 euros multi pieces screwdriver for electronics). This is enough to remove the case and to see the upper part of the electronics board with the batteries, it's possible to unscrew further to remove the electronics board and access the down side but it only includes the LED components so that's mostly unnecessary, especially since no LED was lighting up which meant it wasn't an issue with the LEDs but with something else on the board that made the whole system dysfunction, not just one specific LED bursting.
Then, I simply used an electrical contact cleaner spray, both on the upper part of the board and on the down side of the board (there is a thin slit that allows to use the spray if you plug the straw in on the spray for more precision). I heard this is a common technique used to "repair" or at least extend the life of electronics boards, as often it's simply a problem of a short circuit appearing somewhere for some reason. I then let the board dry up for 20 min with the case still open, and finally I saw the charging LEDs light up cyclically about every 5-10 seconds (the glasses weren't plugged to the electrical outlet so that's the first time I see these LEDs light up like that on their own). These LEDs lit up without clicking on the device, I guess they are a debug code to signal that the case is open or that there is some issue with the Luminette, there is no information about it in the user manual unfortunately. I closed down the case, screwed back the torx screws on the glasses corners (attaching with the legs), and the glasses were fully functional again.
I am not sure how long they will remain operational, but I'll let you guys know if it happens again. The board seem pretty simple, so I'm pretty sure this can be relatively easily fixed by repair shops and engineers.

I bought some CRC QD Electronic Cleaner and it completely fixes the problem... for about a month.
I have to keep spraying this stuff into the analog sticks about once a month but beyond that I have no issues. It works very well.
Given the nature of the problem (you can see more about it here), the controllers I think will deteriorate at some point and either lose sensitivity or become unresponsive in a way that can't be fixed, but that hasn't happened yet for me.
We needed to reset our diapers for baby #2. This entailed rinsing the diapers for a long time. I purchased the Easy Go hand washing wand off Amazon. It made the process much easier. However we haven’t used it on soiled diapers. But if I ever needed to I would definitely used this and a bucket.

Rubbing alcohol (Isopropyl). Preferably 90+ percent. Commonly used as a cleaner for electrical connections and you can get it at pretty much any grocery store or pharmacy.

I pick up many people before, occasionally I would get oily patch and all of them from women passengers.

There was a bunch of stuff in my house that I thought needed replacing because I'd cleaned them but they still didn't look clean, like what you've got with the sink and work surface.
Then my boyfriend bought this: Pink Stuff Paste and it's amazing - it cleaned EVERYTHING.
So I recommend getting some of that and some cloths to use it with and seeing if that works :)
No something like this from WD 40 or you could use high % isopropyl alcohol, but I find this words better. however, give it plenty of time to dry after. For whatever reason, when I clean carts with it, they need like 5 minutes after before they’re working.
It stands for powdered brewing wash. It's commonly used in commercial brewing applications. You mix an ounce or two per gallon depending on the level of soil.
But you could probably get it cheaper if you have a local brewing supply. Oxi-clean probably works great too, but I have this around for brewing.
It sounds like juice or some other form of grime has gotten behind your firing button.
You may be able to clean it out of there with rubbing alcohol or quick dry aerosol electronics cleaner.
Make sure you remove your batteries and leave them out until its dry, then spray some cleaner behind the button and work it around. I personally would go with the aerosol, as isopropyl alcohol will dissolve some plastics.
Amazon has it, your local hardware store might, too. There are many brands, but I think this is the most popular one:
It's a car super cleaner technically but it says "safe on exterior and interior fabric, carpet, leather, vinyl, plastic, rubber, finished wood trim, metals, and more!"

Maybe try some goo gone.

Sure. Just make sure it's electrical contact cleaner (like Electrical Contact Cleaner ). I used automotive Mass Airflow Cleaner because I happened to have some on hand. You want something safe for electronics that dries quickly and leaves ZERO residue.
Ah yes, welcome to porter life.
You want the powdered oxiclean. Just get the regular one, the one that says "odor blaster" costs more and doesn't actually work any better. Fill a bucket with ice cold water (could also use a tub but I don't b/c I bathe my kid in there and it skeeves me out, YMMV) and add powdered oxiclean at a ratio of 2 scoops per gallon of water. Really mix it together well so it dissolves. Add clothes. Irrigate with a plunger, or one of these. Let it sit overnight, check on it, let sit longer if needed, and then wash as normal.
Seems like a good combo to me. Once a month is plenty for the aero 303.
I’ve heard good things about this cleaner. cleaner
The best fix is contact cleaner, it works very very very well, and staves the drift for anywhere between 3 weeks to 3 mos, and requires not much.
Here's a link.
Hit up your closest autoparts or home improvement store and look for a big bottle of evaporust. Pour it in with some small metal pellets like ball bearings, shotgun pellets or bbs or very small nuts. Seal it all up the best you can without your petcock in there. Plan to shake it for like a minute every hour or so and set it back down in a different position. Do this for a few hours up to over a day depending on how much surface rust and flaking is in there. When its all done give it a quick rinse with gas or alcohol.
Go to an auto parts store and buy a can of spray electronics cleaner. There are two different ones, one for switches and things, and one for alternator and starter. Get the one for switches.
Goo-B-Gone. It works wonders.
Apply a few drops, gently smear it around, and wait for about a minute. You can test the patch of sticky stuff with a finger and it should feel slippery and gooey, like honey - if not add a few more drops.
Gently wipe the dissolved sticky stuff away with a soft cloth. You may need to do this more than once for goo that is so old. If you are careful (don't overdo it, just a few careful drops at a time, don't rub too hard, be gentle, take your time), it will not harm the package at all.
Rubbing too hard or using too much goo-be-gone can dissolve box art too, that is why you have to be careful.
You can use this stuff for ANY sticky crap - such as tape leavings, or package stickers. Just be patient, and let the goo-be-gone dissolve the goo.
I use it all the time.
have a few cases of wipes, I can use those for months, and found this hand washer to use in 5 gallon bucket for clothes
If it's got a finish on it (like these doll boxes) you can use Goo Gone. If it's matte or plain cardboard, this product will probably soak in or leave a stain so I wouldn't recommend it. My mom and I use Goo Gone on plastics, dishes, book jackets, packaging, etc. But not on magazines, comic books, paper covered hardback books.
apakah disini ada yang tau versi shopee dari produk ini? a washing wand thingy untuk cuci pakaian, atau ada yang tau alat nyuci pakaian laen?

Do you have a piece that looks like it was used for lead?
What about this stuff? Link
try using the middle slot, maybe the card does not like the chipset
could just be some dust in the slot, try some CRC contact cleaner

This is a good thread b/c I do think there's a bit of myth floating around about yixing clay. That said, perhaps the better topic/question is how to go about testing whether a pot (cups, bowls, etc) is generally food safe.
anyone use https://www.amazon.com/3M-717834209102DUPE-LeadCheck-Swabs-8-Pack/dp/B008BK15PU/ or know of something comparable/better?
Kind of costly but it has worked great for me:
i do not do that because my HEPA vacuum is dry only. once it is sprayed, i could not vacuum it up.

Leave the pan in the bag in a warm place for a couple days. I saw some thick gunk on that pan, so give the lye time to work. You may need to do multiple applications too.
Here is a lead test kit that seems to be the best.
it is HIGHLY unlikely that Toll Brothers would have used a lead painted door in 1999. too much liability.
but if you are concerned, why have you not tested this paint for lead???
Ah cool. I just read you can put vinegar into it for a day, and test it with a 3M lead test kit if you wanted a second opinion.
Electrical contact cleaner works great. You still need to be a little careful though.
I used to use CRC QD Electronic Cleaner. It worked great... for a few months, then the drift would come back and I'd have to spray more.
I was warned, however, that this stuff could ruin the controllers long term. Being alcohol based, it dries out the plastics.
I switched to using Deoxit and the issue hasn't come back at all in over a year. This stuff is oil based, lubricating, and specifically "plastic safe" whereas the CRC cleaner isn't.
Be careful about Deoxit though! It works great for the stick, but don't let any of it get in the buttons! It seems to dissolve the silicone padding underneath the button and breaks the whole mechanism. I ruined my left controller due to this and had to buy another on ebay for over $100.
The right controller is perfectly fine though and, as I said before, the drift hasn't come back at all. Deoxit is the better product if you're careful.
Use contact cleaner to clean it out; D-Oxit D5 is a classic suggestion, but I use WD-40's offering.
"i did not know if any contained lead"
well, in the USA, if the house is built before 1974 you have the potential for it to have lead paint.
a pretty good way to find out if it is lead paint, take a small knife and cut a scalloping cut into the paint surface (so all the paint layers are exposed), get a chemical test tube, and rub on the chemical and see if the cotton end turns pink.
you take te vial, break it in two places to release the chemicals, mix it up, then squeeze out a test drop. rub it into the scalloped cut in the paint you made, and look at the tip.
Pink = lead (dangerous)
gold/yellow = boron (not dangerous)
these are not 100% effective, you need a license and a $10,000 XRF analyzer to be 100% certain. But they work pretty well on stuff like paint pealing on a house
CRC Electronic Contact Cleaner is 5 bucks. I'd give it a try before replacing the switches. It worked a year ago on my Accent window switch and haven't had a problem since.
I promise Evapo-Rust is the best chemical rust remover money can buy, I have tried them all, better than barkeep, vinegar, and cola:
its literally called the pink stuff.
I postedy method of caring for water spots a few weeks back:
I use water protective spray on my suede boots, but not the ones in the above post: Tarrago Hightech Nano Protector
This is what I do, except I use a 5 gallon bucket and this from amazon:
I also have coin operated laundry and there's no way I'm spending $4-$5 after every training session. This also uses less water so it's more environmentally friendly, which matters to me.
Electrical Contact Cleaner.
This stuff is often recommended but only works temporarily. Due to being alcohol based it dries up the contacts thereby causing the problem to return again within a couple of months.
Deoxit works even better. I haven't had the issue return at all for the past year.
Be careful if you use Deoxit. It fixes the stick drift but it'll break your AB/XY buttons if you get any into them!
I don't know any, but the weight of this piece points to lead. If you want to be 100% sure, order some lead test swabs and keep the extras for items you find in the future.
take the backplate off and get some crc contact cleaner and a toothbrush and go ham with it
also clean any that go onto the other side
Like everyone else I'm going to guess Pewter, cause of the P stamp. If you're concerned it could be the lead-containing type, you can get lead testing pens to detect the presence of lead.

English pewter is a tin-copper alloy, but up until recently it used to contain lead. I'd use testing strips like these before drinking out of it.
I had a similar problem and know how you can fix it at least temporarily. Get this spray, remove the battery from the controller, spray some onto the base of the stick, work it in by moving around the stick for a while, and then let it dry for a few minutes.

But other than that, I haven't figured out too much that benefits from steam.
Oh for sure, a million things! Pasta, rice, sous-vide anything (steak, chicken, pork loin, etc.), eggs of all kinds (egg loaf slices for sandwiches, omelet casseroles, egg bites, etc.), veggies, fish, etc. What are you looking for exactly? Low-hassle meals?

This is a very common issue with USB-C. I fix it using a 3-part method. 1. Clean out the bottom of the port using tweezers 2. Gently wipe all of the contacts using lens cleaning wipes and tweezers 3. Spray CRC electrical contact cleaner inside the port
I've fixed around 100 Samsung USB-C ports with this method so far - here are several things to keep in mind. ● Obviously dirty and/or flakey USB cables can cause and/or contribute to intermittent USB connection issues ● Metal Tweezers are okay to use - some people online will tell you not to use metal tweezers - the reality is that you don't need to worry about shorting neighboring pins together briefly - what you should worry about is BENDING PINS ● Don't exert excessive force on any pins - you don't want to bend them. ● When using a lens cleaning wipe you will be introducing moisture to the USB-C port - and this almost certainly will cause the phone to show a moisture detected message and disable the charging port temporarily. ● Moisture detected messages indicate that the CC/VCONN pins inside the port are lower-resistance than normal to their neighboring pins or the ground/shell of the USB-C receptacle. These should go away shortly after spraying the CRC contact cleaner into the port or after 3-20 minutes of drying the port with a fan.
Here is an example of the contact cleaner that I suggest using. This can also be purchased at many auto parts stores such as AutoZone or O'Reilly Auto Parts. https://www.amazon.com/CRC-05103-Electronic-Cleaner-11/dp/B000BXOGNI
If you try nothing else - my suggestion would be to carefully remove what you can from the port with tweezers/needle/thin toothpick and use some contact cleaner on the port.
This stuff saved my joycons and I was finally able to catch bugs again.
The GTX 1060 does not support PCIe 4.0 at all, so there should be no way for it to autonegotiate wrong. This might be a false fix.
In any case, try re-seating the GPU. Take it out, pinch-and-wipe the card edge connector with a paper towel dampened with isopropanol (or contact cleaner: 1, 2, if you have any), and put it back.
Yeah electrical contact cleaner. Follow instructions online. When you think you've done it enough do it 3 more times.
Those things get really messed.
Let dry fully before powering up.
Side note... friction can sort of tell you if it's gonna work. Like if it's a pot knob twist back and forth like 50 times fast while on see if that channel comes back. If so it's likely the pot needs to be cleaned (balance especially is the important one).
This is all very amateur advice but figured it'd help.
The contact cleaner I use is crc cleaner.
